Sewing projects

I have been working on more prayer flags and a few other small sewing projects recently.  I have been making fabric bracelets trying out different methods to see what works best.  I have been practicing my hand sewing also.

I am going to stitch my daughter's name at the top.

I am still working on adding vines and more hand stitching to this flag. 

My daughter went through the scraps of fabric from my hand dyes to pick out the pieces that she wanted for her bracelet. It wraps around her arm three times. I did a lot of free motion stitching over the fabrics.
Next on my to do list is to make a cloak for my son's birthday and a pirate shirt for my sister's birthday.  I will be spending the next few days at my sewing machine.
Have a great week,
